City Tour

Today I was able to sleep in-luckily! When I managed to get out of bed I walked down Grand Alle into Quartier Petit Champlain to do some souvenier shopping. I browsed around for a while then stopped at a Von Houtte for a cafe kahaula and a French baquette with fromage de chevre. Both were delicious. I wrote out my postcards then went back to the hotel for the city tour.

We were provided with a guided bus tour through Quebec City. While on the tour we went to the Upper town of Old Quebec. Here we were able to see the well preserved walls of the Fortification Gate, Le Chateau Frontenac, The Dufferin Terrace, Parliament and numerous Cathedrals. We exited the bus for a while and walked around St. John St. then ended up at DuVille Square, a beautiful area with an outdoor skating rink. All of the Christmas decorations were still out and the lights and ornaments were magnificant!

After the tour it started to rain so I spent most of the afternoon relaxing. Then a big group of us headed out to Enzo for sushi! The food was excellent! I even tried Steak Tartar! Of course I wasn't brave enough to order this, but I did have a taste of someone else's and it was much better than I expected! All of the dishes were presented tastefully and the service was very effecient. It was a great meal!
